Let’s suppose for just an instance that I have taken myself off Tinder and am no longer meeting single guys (or married guys who PRETEND they are single).
What’s a woman to do with all her free time if she’s not chatting up men?
Good question. . .
I have absolutely nothing going on this weekend except for dinner plans with a friend.
I had the FORESIGHT to know I’d need some downtime after several weeks of mini road trips.
Especially since next weekend I’m heading to a housewarming party in Monterey followed by a trip to the Renaissance Faire at Casa de Fruita.
I really should throw myself into my activities, the way I did when I was driving race cars, running with the bulls, and kayaking with whales.
Nadine has suggested that I find some meet ups to go to.
She’ll even go with me.
But that’s just more of me trying to meet someone and I really feel like I need a break from all of the noise it’s brought into my life.
I’ve done quite a bit of activities in the Bay Area in the past – from taking beer making classes to whale watching with Barbara and some adult content activities like attending a burlesque show with Yvonne.
So I might have to repeat some of the oldies but goodies.
A few things I haven’t tried yet are:
- Bocce Ball
- Cooking School
- Trivia Night
- Food Tour of SF (various cuisines)
- Scavenger Hunt
- Adventure Course
- Sushi School
- Wine School
- Hiking Trails
- Laser Light Show
- Brewery Tour
- Fused Glass Class
- Wine Blending
- Improv Class
- Golf Lessons
- Horseback Riding
- Mixology Class
- Photography Class
It’s also been a few years since I did a boudoir shoot, so it may be time to revisit THAT adventure.
Honestly, I’m tempted the most by photography, glass and horseback riding.
Who needs a man when you have hobbies?
I’m reminded of a well-known social psychologist who gave me the following advice when I told him I was getting divorced 14 years ago:
Get some hobbies. Volunteer.
From his lips to God’s ears.
If someone who makes $15,000 speaking to the NFL on self-efficacy is going to give me life advice, I’m gonna take it.
